Gothic Crypt A hypnotic album of melancholic psychedelia that succesfully blends the folkish darkness of The Swans with the eastern mesmerism of Dead Can Danse in a post-rock context. Gothic Crypt approves. Favorite track: Hypnotized Narcissist.

A Good choice for companionship on an airplane. It's absorbing third-eye candy.

It makes me think of The Velvet Underground's Venus in Furs, what with the droning regularity of middle eastern-inspired psychedelia. If you start thinking about lyrical comparisons, you might find an essay starting to develop, but I'll at least say that both seem to have, at the core, the black hole of obsessive longing. (That's a black hole in an astrological sense.) Favorite track: Dead Eyes.

E'sPsychedelicBreakfast This album simply is melancholic perfection! Even if you just read its title "Hallucination of Beauty" it already has such a radical and sad feeling to it.
The lyrics are the most beautiful words I've read in a while. So few words, but so full of meaning.
Especially the last song really got me. Favorite track: Darlin' 61.

Bucky It's like ecstasy for the ears sprinkled upon a dusty, windswept, desert plateau. Dreamy vocals chant to a whimsical psychedelic beat. Favorite track: When She Takes a Hold of You.

I have sounded my prayer To your sweet eyes To drift away on your Hurricane breath of lust There's a silence to your gaze Echoing your words Your reflection in the lake Disappears in time No one will ever know of the dead fire in you You'll get lost inside the noise

On My Mind 04:33
You're hazy You’re pale Black hearted Confusion You are on my mind Colors change in your eyes Angelic With heartache Misguided Despite it You are on my mind Colors change in your eyes I fear you Come near you There's mountains Between you You are on my mind Colors change in your eyes You're hazy You’re pale You’re murky Black hearted You are on my mind Colors change in your eyes

Dead Eyes 05:39
I know a place we can sleep Where our souls float in space High above this forsaken land I’ll sing the song from your dreams Just to make you care baby And to see your sweet fire again Baby I need your dead eyes in my soul Honey let’s lose it all together She got lips like the waves The quiet waves in her smile This desire is another heaven She is the darkest night And the brightest sun When she sticks a needle deep in her vein Baby I need your dead eyes in my soul Honey let’s lose it all together

Spending all your nights alone Reading in the books you've loaned Looking for words to tell Why you’re never feeling well When she takes a hold of you How could we have ever known Just how long the shadow had grown Hoping you kept your smile For everyone we used to know When she takes a hold of you When she takes a hold of you Spending all your nights alone Reading in the books you've loaned Looking for words to tell Why you’re never feeling well When she takes a hold of you When she takes a hold of you

No sleep tonight The sun turns into streetlights A kiss from the desert flower Keeps the shadows on the wall Ashes from the fire in my bones Rise in the cold clear sky Gone in black desire Breath in the rising dust Lust cuts through the days as a knife Cuts though the silent prayer

Silence 05:31
Today I took a pill To kill all my desires Today I took a pill To silence all your lies

Darlin' 61 03:52
The night you played tricks for me And I travelled through your soft bones I was just a lonely visitor among your crowd I was just your free bird Darlin' you threw my soul in the lost sea Darlin' you know I'll walk away just for you The storm in your hair beats the hurricane That's just the way you are Things have changed like we knew it would Heaven is twisted and cursed Darlin' I've seen beauty spread its wings Darlin' the old flame is still tall and bright She has a crown of love for everyone And I'm just haunting what was
